The 2014 NZ Youth Match Racing Nationals are under way. Some really challenging conditions made it difficult for sailors and race officials.
With four teams from the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and four from Royal Port Nicholson the pressue is on the young sailors to see who will come out on top in a classic Wellington vs Auckland Darby.
A short morning session was held before the teams were literally blown off the water. After the Race Committee had deemed the wind to have died enough the sailors took to the Water to do battle once more. There was a mixture of no kites racing and racing with kites, depending on if the wind was up or not. Check out the results page to see where the teams are at.
